Honestly, I don't think one needs to be a legal eagle to realise that those cookie banners do not remotely meet the definition of informed consent, and therefore, nor is the action of dismissing the banner contractually binding.

@61 @laura I am more concerned with the actual (journalistic) integrity of these publications. If the first thing they try is to deceive you to give up your data then how can I assume their ethical standards are any better when choose what to write?

@GDPR_HallOfShame

Journalistic integrity? Oh I'm sure they've heard of it. 😁

Bad jokes aside, I know some journos myself, some on a professional and some on a personal capacity, and the interaction between the individual and organisational ethos is a very complex matter.
